Corporate governance & responsibilities; Boards & directors: role & responsibilities; Company secretary: role & responsibilities
Written by leading subject expert Christine Mallin, Corporate Governance combines clear, accessible discussion of theory with a wealth of contemporary, global examples to introduce students to both the essential principles of the subject and how they apply in practice. In addition, broad coverage of international attitudes and approaches to governance allow students to develop a wider understanding of business issues in an increasingly globalized world.

The complexities of socially responsible investment in Myanmar, L'Oreal's celebrated sustainability programme, and the leadership problems at South Korea's Samsung are just some of the new and updated case studies for the sixth edition, ensuring examples are not just relevant but topical too. In addition, Financial Times articles reporting on issues and events as diverse as the gender pay gap, shareholder rebellions, and legal action on climate change accompany chapters, providing further real-life examples of theory in practice.

This book is accompanied by a range of online resources:

Reviews for Corporate Governance 6e

A useful text that provides a solid foundation for any corporate governance module. * Dr Emer Gallagher, Liverpool John Moores University * The book addresses important concepts and variables in a pedagogical way. * Dr Daniel Johanson, Norwegian School of Economics * Covers the essentials of corporate governance in an accessible way. * Sarah Fitzgerald, York St John University * Mallin remains my preferred text due to its accessibility, currency, and its use of case studies. It enlivens the discipline to students. * Ms Mariette Jones, Middlesex University London * Coverage is comprehensive and the text is readable and alive...more accessible than some of the other law- or finance-heavy texts in this area. * Ms Joanne Atkinson, University of Portsmouth *
